in the middle east tells fox that the u.s. consulate in benghazi had to be classified as a, quote, "critical threat, terrorism, or civil unrest posting," and what fall follows the classification are specific security requirements including reenforced windows and doors. grading is only acceptable for the ambassador residents and not where official business is done. as for the perimeter security, walls have to be three meters in height and buildings set back 100 feet. the enhanced security is designedded to create an hour of safety or golden hour when class fied documents can be burned and emergency evacuation called in. we have asked the state department tonight whether the consulate met the security requirements, and if not, if approved, the state department spokeswoman said they had nothing to add until their own internal investigation is complete, lou. lou: thank you. outstanding reporting throughout. >> thank you. lou: on this story. is there anyone in the nation's capitol now ready to call this an outright cover up by this administration? >> i think what we're starting to see play out no

some read the cops. lou: why would they declined security for the u.s. ambassador? to these people remember we just launched hostilities eight months ago? >> that is the key. if the blame game starts and has i was there during watergate and in the pentagon during iran-contra. now they blame the state department, intelligence community then you will see the whistle-blowers coming out of the woodwork career diplomats, intelligence officers with connections you will see the drip drip drip every week ultimately there will be hearings with a political crisis. lou: hearings have produced effectively nothing. we have to rise above the level of u.s. senators and congressmen sending letters with the action taken there has to be a higher level of energy and oversight of the senate if the country will be served at all. lou: watch secretary clinton. she should have been out there is 70 when ambassador. of that was hurt issue she was at her house in washington she could have gone in she didn't. i think she knew there was a problem what she does next will be important. lou: why was axelrod talki
from some indicated is getting worse. security remain weak. in april, there was only one u.s. diplomatic security agents stationed there. we also struggled to obtain additional personnel. but we were never able to obtain the numbers we were comfortable with. lou: all of this will be analyzed and checked by our experts tonight. the latest from the campaign trail that is winding its way quickly to election day. congressman ryan's big night, the vice president as well, with us tonight is senator ron johnson, strong supporter of wisconsinite, it is all unfolding the way that the producer blockbuster of 2016. dinesh d'souza with us. affirmative action, back before the supreme court. the high court heard arguments today as to whether we can be a colorblind society. shannon bream was there. we will have the report for us coming out. the administration isn't reeling. a president seemingly off-balance. governor romney has taken a slight overall lead in national polls and the president seems to be criticized almost as vigorously by his friends is by governor romney. now we learn the de
of state hillary clinton out on the lam. joining us to a former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, fox is contributor john bolton. ambassador, let's go first to the idea that when jay carney was trying to create some buffer, some comfort cause some zone by saying that vice-president biden was only referring to himself and the presidt of the united states when he said that he knew of no such request. your reaction? >> well, i cannot believe that. that is why there is a national security council staff at the going on at the state department at the defense department, to make sure that the critical issues are brought to the president's attention. this was obviously a very high-risk posed and, indeed, it was opposed where al qaeda killed our ambassador. the entire national security staff to list? biggest if so and his comments seemed to indicate that the maid is the state department's responsibility alone, want to know what is going to the mind of diligence and right now and, perhaps an even more importantly what is going to the mind of bill clinton that his boss, secretary has just been d
intelligence agencies and the u.s. aid the and confused intelligence agencies with the cia with the military. >> the confusion in this instance is the white house with the president pro all the reasons why we've heard of military force could not be sent, we need permission. how was that? the cia denied request. if the president has an inclination not to use force bureaucrats can follow that. that is the direction. not from leon panetta but from the president. that is what people need to go after. >> exactly. the president hangs around in this country with people who hate the military, war and defending america up. he wants to go to jon stewart, las vegas, i get himself flattered with young people while soldiers and ambassadors are killed overseas. he is a despicable man in terms of being commander in chief. lou: thank you. more on the worsening scandal. with the "a team" next. 11 days. polls and polls. what happens if neither candidate may -- -- breaches the number of 270? the top stock. another bombshell from the "rolling stone" interview. is clear he is not content to just regulate but de
showing strength in benghazi before the attack on u.s. consulate. the terrorists held a conference in june, which was attended by the bulk of al qaeda network in libya. that according to a pentagon research report. joining me now fox news national security analyst, kt mcfarland. first, let's deal with if we may, that debate. the president making the straightforward statement, that he declared it to be a terrorist attack the day after benghazi, i have to tell you, the press has been mute on that statement by the president. it is remarkable. >> it is very -- the greatest story of our time, which is that press is see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil in the cult of obama. the word terror may have left his lips in that rose garden ceremony but it had nothing to do with the benghazi attack, they pun it for two weeks, that was not part of their narrative, 5 days before that attack. the president was at the democratic convention he said, bin laden is dead and al qaeda is back on its heel, yet 5 days later al qaeda attacks american embassies in yemen, egypt. and emergency consulate in libya,
by the rebels judge of the united states where one-fifth of the u.s. economy is down -- generated, of death of the population lives in the theft of car sales, fifth of housing whereas the trend was narrowly focused. it was a tragic event. this is more like a hurricane that hit in 1938 that helped cars out and create that hamptons and east in the long end. certainly possibly this hurricane redefining the coast of new jersey in similar fashion , but over talking about is estimates of $50 billion in economic damages. i would say you can't get a ballpark number on this. about 21 states commensurately d.c. affected. possiblities as the states affected. lou: nowhere near the loss of life as katrina, because people did respond. we have to give the national weather service and hurricane center, all of the neurologists up and down the seaboard great credit because they did alert people to the -- what was coming , unimaginable as it was. >> and it is still happening, so that's why it's really difficult to get, you know, good, decent tally or an estimate. j.p. morgan chase and saying we could see the
whatsoever of a mythic in u.s. military covert or overt presence in benghazi or near benghazi, able to carry out the will of the commander-in-chief should he make the decision. hopefully that is a misapprehension on the public's part. >> my sources tell me that there are, i guess, capabilities in place for special operations teams, as well as drum strikes if the call is made. the other issue here is, in some ways, president obama is darned if he doesn't die but he doesn't. it would be seen as a political move in an election year a month away from the election if he was to take a strike based on intelligence. however, not acting could also have political consequences. it is a tough decision for the white house at this point summaries. >> that is a very talented both view, i think, part of analysts that would say that is a pro-american government. there is nothing refusing to allow fbi agents go there, but those aren't the acts of a friendly government, either that, or it was a delay on the part of a very timid government, namely our own to well, i'm still trying to find out the dynamics there
